About Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy is a general term that’s used to describe the process of treating mental health, emotional distress, and some psychiatric disorders through talking -- not drugs.

A psychotherapy session is not like a routine office visit to your family doctor; here, you will take an active role in your own treatment. During sessions, I may use a variety of methods to address your concerns or issues; you'll be given homework to work on between appointments.

Psychotherapy often focuses on unpleasant aspects of your life. At times you may experience uncomfortable feelings including sadness, anger or frustration - but successful treatment often leads to significant reductions in emotional distress, better relationships, and solutions to specific problems. 

Your health insurance carrier will pay for psychotherapy so long as the treatment focuses on alleviating symptoms of a specific mental illness or disorder. You’re responsible for co-payments and insurance plan deductibles. 

I’m a contracted network provider for Blue Cross & Blue Shield, UnitedHealth Group, Tufts Health Plan, and Neighborhood Health Plan. I accept self-pay patients, as well as those whose insurance plan offers out-of-network coverage.

How Can I Help?

Since you’re unique, I’ll tailor treatment to your individual needs. 

I’m an experienced general practitioner with an approach and style that works. My goal is much more than symptom relief. I’ll give you tools and strategies to regain control and mastery over your life through positive changes – changes that will last. 

I work primarily with individuals, from young adulthood (at least 20 years old) through the elderly years. All sexual orientations are welcome. 

I’ll collaborate with your other health care providers and loved ones to give you the most effective care possible. If need be, I’ll help you schedule a meeting with another mental health professional for a second opinion.
